Fyi, the popular dtvcontrol.exe for controlling certain DirecTV settops via serial control did not work for me out-of-the box with my D10-100 settop. (I was just trying to use the included GUI. I could power on/off, but could not change channels.) I didn't spend too much time on it, and others have used it successfully with MP, so...

MP1 MP2 SQLite3 w/ JDBC DE
To manipulate the Media Portal SQLite3 databases via JDBC, you can use the JDBC driver from: http://www.ch-werner.de/javasqlite/ Following the instructions worked for me. For a general DB GUI client, I use DBVisualizer (http://www.minq.se/products/dbvis/), although any Java based client will probably work. This setup allows me to...

I had problems with TV losing sync (flashing black and white / a little bit badly formed picture) for a short period with my NVidia 5200 when : 1) timeshifting was turned on / off 2) channel was changed with timeshifting on Enabling "Force TV Detection" in Display properties -> Advanced -> NVidia tab -> Tools solved this.

MP1 MP2 Dutch TV guide DE
Well done Robert ! I really like your solution. Previously I used the EPG Manager to download the pregrabbed xml files, but this gave me way too much information in the tvguide.xml for channels I did not have. When searching in the guide using the mp-webinterface I ended up with non-valid results because of this. But now I really find...

A quick tip (learnt the hard way!) if you are using a USB soundcard (E.G. Soundblaster Extigy) and a USB capture card (E.G. Hauppauge WinTV-PVR USB2) even if they are both USB2 (and should therefore have the bandwidth to cope) do not connect them to the same controller on your PC. Most PC's now have 4 (or more) USB ports on the back...

The disadvantage of using say a 32KB cluster is that a 1 byte file will actually take up 32KB on disc, so if you have many small files you end up wasting large amounts of storage space. In Windows Explorer right-click on a small file (try and kind one under 4KB) and choose Properties, there you'll see two sizes reported, the actual...

MP1 MP2 Fix for bad video DE
Hi, There are some quite interesting posts on other HTPC forums about this issue. It seems my "jerky" video from timeshifting live TV after doing some FBW/FFW could be related to this particular bug in DX9.0c. However, I don't have this problem when using the internal MPEG2 codec... A word of warning: you might break playback of...

MP1 MP2 Sorting out lipsync DE
Maybe this is a very obvious tip. When trying to sort out lipsync problems with my TFT TV I found that the best program for solving this are gameshows.
